What are some of the uses for CodeRed?
The primary use of CodeRed is to notify county residents of an immediate emergency. It can be used to define an area for evacuation or "shelter in place" notifications for incidents such as a hazardous material spill or major gas leak. It can also be used to direct residents to a specific TV or radio station for further important details and instructions. It may alert residents to shelters activated in municipalities during weather or power emergencies. It may be used to alert residents of wildfires approaching their area. CodeRed can also be used to alert a neighborhood to watch for a lost child, an impaired individual who has walked away, or a dangerous individual that may be in the area. The 9-1-1 center can create lists of emergency responders and use CodeRed as a backup to the normal emergency notification process.
